Crystal Palace are preparing to rival West Ham United for the signature of Hull City’s Robert Snodgrass, according to The Guardian.

The Eagles’ precarious 17th place in the Premier League means that new manager Sam Allardyce is looking to improve his squad to lift them up the table away from the relegation zone.

Snodgrass is attracting interest from several top-flight teams, including fellow London side West Ham, who are said to have already had a £3 million bid turned down.

Hull have reportedly valued the striker, who has scored seven goals in 19 league appearances, at £9m.

The 29-year-old has 18 months left on his current contract after the club triggered a one year extension following his rejection of a new deal.

Palace summer signing Christian Benteke has been a hit at Selhurst Park since joining from Liverpool in August, scoring eight goals in 18 league matches, however, it seems the side need another forward to support him if they are to avoid relegation this season and Snodgrass could be the answer.

  1. Once again we are short on our bids.You can bet that Palace will pay £9m bec ause when they go after someone,they usually get him,unlike West Ham who get outbid.Only thing in our favour is,does Snodgrass want to go to another relegation club when the hammers are sitting 3th?
